The Wadi Halfa-Dongola road has just been finished (mid december) that a new bus travel line between Khartoum and Wadi Halfa is opened...

Wadi halfa is in the extreme North of Sudan, on the egypt frontiers



The road was paved from Khartoum to Dongola, then you had a 400 km journey through mountain of rocks and sand desert, awful and dangerous for any kind of vehicule...

Some pcitures before:

Just coming back from Sudan. The road from Wadi Halfa to Khartoum as well as Khartoum to ethiopian border are completed and in a very good new shape - I prefer the west side - unpaved and rough like all the years before. There is no more train service from Wadi Halfa.
Cheers

On the west side of the nile means, that there is no paved road. You will do village hopping up to Dongola and that`s one of the best things you can do in Sudan.
Approx. time going by bus on the east side on paved road
Wadi Halfa to Dongola 6h
Dongola to Karima 2,5h
Karima to Atbara 3h
Arbara to Khartoum 4h
And at last the direct bus from Wadi Halfa to Khartoum about 10h.

Guesthouse / lokandas on the way you will find in: Abri, Kerma, Dongola, Karima, Atbara, and Shendi. But don`t worry if you have to stop on the way the local people are wonderful and I`m sure you will not sleep outside.
Cheers

Btw this month Sudanese economy minister met with all Chinese compagny involved in the road, bridge, power station... and ask them to speed the work.

Work in West Sudan roads (basically the 3 Darfur states plus West Kurdufan) approxiately 1500 km has begun this month.

And there the North South road link from Juba to Renk, 985 km should also begin but im not sure wheter it began or not.

SUDAN: GOVT MEETING CHINESE COMPANIES IMPLEMENTING DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

KHARTOUM, Dec 3 (NNN-SUNA) — Sudan Minister of Finance, Dr. Awad Ahmed Al-Jaz, has called on the Chinese companies implementing roads, bridges and electricity project to speed up the process of work at these vital and strategic projects.

At a meeting he held Wednesday at his office with the Chinese companies which are implementing roads, bridges and electricity projects country-wide, Dr. Al-Jaz disclosed that work will begin in current December to implement the Western Salvation highway.


He said that work will also begin shortly to establish Al-Debaibat – Al-Foula and Um-Ruwaba – Abu-Jebaiha road, Sennar bridge, the railway line and the Peace Road between Renk – Malakal – Juba, the electricity line between Dongola – Wadi-Halfa, and Al-Foula electricity power project.

He said that the preparations were finalized to the electricity lines between Kosti and Al-Obeid and between Al-Obeid and Babanousa which will link Darfur with the National Electricity Network.

He said the implementation of roads, bridges and electricity lines comes in the context of the integrated and sustainable development to link between the production and consumption areas and to boost the peace and security. — NNN-SUNA
Chinese are building Sudanese infrastructure at very fast pace.
So fast that when electricity, or road came to their city and village, they have hard time to believe it, they waited decades to see it

So this begs the 64,000 dollar question from the travellers: when will it be possible to get from Khartoum to the Uganda (at Nimule) or Kenya border (near Lokichogio) via Juba in the South ?

don't hold your breath the infrastructure in Southern Sudan is virtually non existent with less then 10 miles of tarmacked road out side Juba.

Exactly

Sudan is bigger than all these nations combined with a population of less than halve of the UK's !!! we still aren't in need of such wide roads like in UK, france or Germany.

Khartoum Nile Bridge

Google Earth imagery shows a new bridge across the Nile River under construction in Khartoum. This is the fifth bridge across the river in the Khartoum metro area, in addition to a road across a dam south of the city.
